Populations We Assist

The patients we see at Wilmington Mental Health range from children to seniors - accessibility to treatment for the different age groups is our goal. We also provide services for individuals, couples, new parents, families, groups, women, immigrants, and people involved with the court system. Our process ensures a smooth transition into treatment. Beginning with a call or text message, we then schedule an appointment for you with a therapist that matches your preferences and needs. We ask you to complete our registration forms before your initial meeting and to arrive a few minutes before your appointment to review your insurance information and demographics. That is it.

Serving Vulnerable and Underserved

Populations that have been denied opportunities to participate deserve our attention. These include Black/African Americans, Latinos, Indigenous people, members of religious minorities, LGBTQIA+ members, individuals with disabilities, and people impacted by persistent poverty or inequality. Among these people, we have found that some have a high risk for health problems or pre-existing conditions, have financial, educational, or housing limitations, have transportation mobility impairments or lack access to transportation, have lowered capacity to communicate and face discrimination regularly. Some of them even display fear and distrust in accessing government programs, which translates into getting minimum access to healthcare, being skeptical about programs that target their needs, facing barriers to accessing primary health services, and lacking knowledge about our health care system.

As We Age
Numerous mental illnesses first appear during childhood and can go undetected as the warning signs may not be easy to identify by parents. If a child does not experience mental illness during childhood, they may still encounter difficult, anxiety producing situations as they turn into young adults. Life events such as starting a relationship or becoming a parent may bring them great joy and fulfillment but at times it can also bring them significant stress and pain.

Families may be entirely affected when a member of the household experiences mental illness, and females, married or not, can demonstrate emotional and physical needs that emerge as they transition through various phases of their life. Finally, many older adults become more vulnerable to developing chronic medical illness and cognitive impairments as they age. Basically, our mental health can be targeted by psychiatric conditions at any point of our life.
